Women in Cyber Switzerland Talk - Kathryn Hedley

You can still listen to Kathryn Hedley's talk on 'PinePhone Forensics' from the WiC 2021

The PinePhone is one of the first true Linux-based smartphone projects that has released mobile devices, available to the general public, with a smartphone-specific variant of Linux pre-flashed onto the device. However, there is the prospect of such devices becoming more common in the future, and it's fun to see what data may be stored on a device, where, and how we can acquire it, to work out how it may be useful to a digital forensic investigation if one of these devices was seized as part of a case.


Skills Validation – GIAC Cyber Security Certifications

Many of the SANS courses align to Global Information Assurance Certification (GIAC) examinations. The GIAC validates the skills of information security professionals, proving that those certified have the deep skills and technical knowledge necessary to work in key areas of cybersecurity.
